Verse 1
Here at the end of your days,
Have you been watching and waiting so diligently for a hope of glory
On God’s celestial shores?
And all of this time you’ve been here,
Have you been laboring hard in the fields,
Walking in faith and assurance as God opens wondrous doors?

Chorus
Oh, God gave you life
And that life was the light of man
To live has been Christ, yet to die is gain
And when your day will come
We will miss you all the same
We will be here in your place
To strengthen the things which remain, to strengthen the things which remain

Verse 2
And please pray for us of this next generation
We will be brought before great persecution
We will be hidden for righteousness’ sake,
As we strengthen the things which remain
Oh, we are Your children, so pray we hold fast
To the words God has spoken to the very last
And pray that we follow as the Spirit hath led
As we speak out the truth in Your stead.

Verse 3
Here at the end of your days,
Have you been watching and waiting so diligently?
Pray we hold true to the Gospel and never give place to a lie
And all of this time You’ve been here,
You have been laboring hard in the fields
Pray that the seed you have sown would grow into Godly lives
